Tuna-Lima Salad

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

This salad is ideal for a family lunch or a ladies' luncheon. With rolls and dessert it is a whole meal. This salad is best made the day before and chilled overnight. I got this recipe from a dear friend of my MIL, who got it from one of those recipe card collections. Cooking time is actually chilling time.

I made this to take to work for my lunches. Very good, filling and nutritious. I used less green onion and more celery and olives.
